October 2009 Gathering at Janet's
Fall has arrived in Houston! We missed Teresa this time, but we are all looking forward to our special celebration with her next month.
Now that we can walk outside without melting, it seemed a good time to prepare some seasonal dishes to celebrate. Janet got the ball rolling with our main dish recipe, roasted pork and apples with cider glaze.
Tonya chose to bring an appetizer, crostini with roasted garlic, goat cheese and apple chutney.
Carol went all out with a soup AND salad, and both were delicious. The butternut bisque and pear, roquefort, pecans and mixed greens with celery vinaigrette recipes are by the Dining Diva, Molly Fowler.
Angie rounded out the entree with two side dishes, sweet-roasted rosemary acorn squash wedges and brussel sprout salad with pancetta and cranberries.
Mary, who is queen of donuts and desserts and still fits into those slim blue jeans, brought cinnamon roll bread pudding ... who wouldn't love that?!
